CORTLANDT, N.Y. – Cortlandt Town Supervisor Linda Puglisi said Con Edison estimates it will be seven to 10 days from Friday, Nov. 2, before the entire town's power is restored after being knocked out Monday by Hurricane Sandy. This estimate would put full power restoration in the town between Friday, Nov. 9 and Monday, Nov. 12.
Con Edison reported that 4,539 customers of the 12,295 served are without power in Cortlandt as of 3 p.m. Friday. In Buchanan, Con Edison reported 116 customers of the 1,010 served without power. In Croton, Con Edison reported 988 of the 3,629 served were without power.
Puglisi said the town remains in a state of emergency, and the Muriel H. Morabito Community Center, 29 Westbrook Drive, will remain open as a shelter.
Puglisi said 30 town roads remain closed or blocked by fallen trees, down from a high of 76.
The Port of New York and New Jersey was reopened on a limited basis to ships carrying gasoline and diesel fuel. Officials hope this will alleviate the fuel shortage in the town.
Regularly scheduled garbage and recycling pickup has resumed. Election Day – Tuesday, Nov. 6 – is a town holiday and there will not be garbage or recycling pickup.
